Every year it is a tradition for Salem Elementary to hold a Turkey Gobbling contest. There are three categories, strut, gobbler, and combo. The winners and participants of the strut and gobbler received a candy bar while the winners of the combo received a pumpkin pie! They are judged by grade level. We definitely had a great time this year!!
After listening to and Aesop's fable, fourth graders made paper mitt puppets and wrote an original script where characters experienced a simple problem in a unique setting. Students enjoyed presenting their puppet show to their classmates. Thanks to our GAINS specialist from the district, Mrs. Bean, for sharing this fun idea with our students!
Over the past weekend we celbrated Veteran's Day. On Monday morning, Salem Elementary students paid tribute to our Veterans in a Veteran's Day Assembly. During the assembly Veterans introduced themselves adn told us when and where they have served. We also watched a short video clip which informed students of the meaning behind the Star Spangled Banner, what the words really mean, and then we all stood together to sing it. We thank our veterans for the sacrifices they made so that we may enjoy our freedom each and every day.
Life Flight and Salem City's emergency responders visited our school's playground for Red Ribbon Week. Students were filled with excitement while anticipating the arrival of Life Flight. Then, what an awesome sight it was, to watch the helicopter actually land on our school's field. After it landed, students got an up close look at the helicopter and were able to learn a few facts about Life Flight. Then at lunch, Salem City brought a fire truck, amublance, and police cars for students to see.
